HOUSTON, Texas — Tavasha Anderson scored a career-high 17 points and Whitney Frazier added a career-high 16 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 79-53 win over Houston before 507 fans at Hofheinz Pavilion Wednesday night.
With the victory, Tech improved to 3-6 on the season as the Lady Techsters prepare to host Mississippi State Sunday at the Thomas Assembly Center at 2 p.m.
Anderson connected on 6-of-8 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws while adding a career-high seven rebounds in 23 minutes while Frazier was 7-of-12 from the field, including her first career three-pointer in 34 minutes of action.
The chance at redemption is a powerful thing — just ask Ruston’s Caden Doga.
Doga had a chance to play early hero for the Ruston High Bearcats on Friday as the eighth-seeded Bearcats played host to No. 25 Walker in opening round play of the Class 5A Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs.
At the plate with two out and two runners on base in the bottom of the first, Doga hit a short infield pop-up to end the inning at 0-0.
